We have a brand new excerpt from Rob Zombie’s killer clown opus, 31 to share with you today. It sees Doom-Head (Richard Brake) prepping for battle, and assuring himself that he is truly in control and not, in fact, insane. Check it out for yourself in the player window, below. And, as always, we want to know what you think!
What we know thus far is that Zombie submitted 31 to the MPAA at least three time before escaping the dreaded NC-17 classification. But he eventually succeeded in securing an R-rating and doesn’t feel that he had to compromise his vision. The film will enjoy a limited theatrical release beginning September 16th, 2016. But prior to that, 31 will be screening in theaters nationwide for one night only on September 1st. You can score tickets for that right here!
In addition to Richard Brake, 31 also stars Lew Temple (Devil’s Rejects), Lawrence Hilton Jacobs (Otis), Sheri Moon Zombie (Lords of Salem), Malcolm McDowell (Clockwork Orange), Judy Geeson (Lords of Salem), Meg Foster (They Live), Daniel Roebuck (Phantasm: Ravager), Michael “Redbone” Alcott (The Devil’s Rejects), Jeffrey Daniel Phillips (Lords of Salem), and more.
31 is set in 1975. The project zeroes in on five people kidnapped in the days leading up to Halloween. They are brought to a place called Murder World where they must fight for their survival by playing a deadly game called 31. To win, the ‘contestants’ must kill their opponents over a 12-hour period. Their adversaries are comprised of a group of sadistic killer clowns.
